God’s Shadow

Aug 30

Read Psalm 91:1-16

You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.”

-Psalm 91:1 (NRSV)

IT was just past noon on a rather hot, sunny day when I left the school with my young nephew. As we walked along, my nephew kept moving to remain within the shadow of my rather large frame.

“What are you doing?” I asked.

“Trying to find shade from the sun,” he said.

I then remembered the words of the psalmist: “You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the LORD, ‘My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.'”

What joy it is to learn to live sheltered by God! With God all things are possible. When illness, pain, or preoccupations threaten to consume us, we can find refuge in the shadow of God’s wings.

Cesar A. Matos (Barahona, Dominican Republic)

Fill us with your Spirit, O Lord, that we may learn to abide in the shelter of the Most High. Amen.

Football FINALLY makes sense……….

Aug 30

A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game. They had great seats right behind their team’s bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked the experience.

“Oh, I really liked it,” she replied, “especially the tight pants and all the big muscles, but I just couldn’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.”

Dumbfounded, her date asked, “What do you mean?”

“Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was:

‘Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!’

I’m like…Helloooooo? It’s only 25 cents!!!!

The Pharmacist Apology

Aug 30

Upon arriving home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully, she explained, “It’s the druggist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone.”

Immediately the husband drove downtown to confront the druggist, and demand an apology. Before he could say more than a word or two, the druggist said, “Now just a minute! Listen to my side of it.

This morning the alarm failed to go off, so I was late getting up. I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car, only to realize that I had locked the house and the car keys were inside. I had to break a window to get my keys.

Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket. Later, when I was about three blocks from the store, I had a flat tire.

When I finally got to the store there were a bunch of people waiting for me to open up. I got the store opened, and started waiting on these people. All the time the darn phone was ringing off the hook.

I had to break open a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change, and they spilled all over the floor. I got down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels. The phone was still ringing. When I came up, I cracked my head on the open cash drawer. That made me stagger back against a showcase with a bunch of perfume bottles on it, and half of them hit the floor and broke.

Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up.

When I finally got to answer it, it was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a RECTAL thermometer. And believe me Mister, as God is my witness… all I did was tell her!”
